JEWELLERY SIZE GUIDE

The beauty of bespoke jewellery is that you can get exactly what you want.
At Jacob Oliver we can design and make a necklace or bracelet to what ever length you desire.

However, as a guide here are the industry standard sizes which are always a good place to start.

These lengths have been working for people for hundreds of years so you may find just what you are looking for
but if you don’t, let us know and we will make it bespoke to your specifications.

BRACELET

To find your perfect bracelet size, follow these steps:

STEP 1: Measure your wrist with a flexible tape measurements or a strip of paper just below the wrist bone, where you would normally wear the bracelet.

STEP 2: If you are using a plain strip of paper, mark your size with a pen or pencil then use a ruler to measure the length. That would be your wrist size.

STEP 3: To find your bracelet size, just add your wrist size with the appropriate measurements below.


FITTING STYLE ADD INCH(ES) TO WRIST SIZE
Snug Fit Add 1/4" to 1/2"
Comfort Fit Add 3/4" to 1"
Loose Fit Add 1 1/4"

Do you want a snug or loose fit? Well, that really will vary between each individual. If you are buying a delicate bracelet with a thin chain, we suggest doing a snug fit. Most other bracelets should have a comfort fit except when buying large or thick cuffs or bangles. It’s best to buy large bracelets with a loose fit so you don’t feel like you are suffocating your wrist.


BANGLE

To determine your bangle size, follow these steps:

STEP 1: Put your hand out straight with your fingers together and palm flat. Now bring your thumb to your little finger, to create the same hand shape you’d make if you were putting on a bangle.

STEP 2: Using a strip of paper or tape measurements, wrap it around your hand at the widest point.. If you are using a plain strip of paper, mark your size with a pen on that paper. Then measure that paper strip with a ruler. That would be the circumference of your hand.

STEP 3: Compare your hand circumference to the chart below. Purchase a bangle with diameter that is the next size up from your actual hand measurement.


DIAMETER CIRCUMFERENCE SIZE
2 3/8 7 1/2 Small
2 5/8 8 1/4 Medium
2 3/4 8 3/5 Large
